when voters are asked who do you most trust to handle the economy. if the challenger in this economy can't get a lead on the president on that question, he won't win. >> ari, do you agree with that, on that key question? >> well, it all comes down to the sample size and the poll. again, if the polls oversample democrats, of course you will get that answer. here's why, anderson, i think you have to dig a little deep. in the last six days, there have been seven polls in the state of florida. one of them has obama -- one of them has romney up by one point. the rest are a very close race within the margin of error, one point, three points, four points, four points, one for five points. a poll came out that shows the president is up nine points. here's how they got there. they have nine percentage point more democrat turnout than republican. it's a fantasy. in the 2008 obama landslide it was advantage for the democrats of just three points. republicans won florida in 2004, republicans turned out by four percentage points more. you just can't have those kind of swings, the numbers aren't r

in the american economy. if we did get a decision on the grand bargain that the ten year time frame of how we would manage the cuts and spending and tax increases and investments, because we need to do all three. we need the tax, we need to cut and invest in the sources of our strength. i think that would just have a huge -- americans feel like children are permanently divorcing parents, and i think it is like a poll on the country in a lot of ways. so second, if we had a grand bargain on energy, how to exploit the bounty of natural gas in particular in the environmentally safe and sustainable way on the national basis i think those two things together would have a huge impact. so the question is how close are we to that? and i was saying about the middle east but it may apply to american politics is all important politics happens the morning after the morning after. so, i think -- hearing talking about the election. i don't know how the election is going to come up and make no predictions but i do ask myself if romney gets smashed i don't think the political problem is we have a center left

court, because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs, the supreme court does not play among undecided voters could but it is a motivator for one space to get out and get to the polls because you want this person to replace justice ginsburg when she retires, for example. and health care is really the only thing that resonates. if there is any possible outcome is that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. and governor romney may well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute could but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of salience in something like a presidential debate. so other than health care, i do not see much happening. >> i think it will not happen. and here's why. no major national political figure has attacked affirmative action publicly since 1996 or before. it isind of remarkable. the republicans who, during the 1990's for a while, we're seeing some sort of political profit attacking affirmative action given the polls don't do
